. >>> bracing for hurricane sandy. we have a lot coming up this morning. we're checking in with virginia and maryland emergency management, plus pepco joins us with how they are preparing for outages, and tips on how to make it through the coming storm. >>> good morning. and welcome to fox 5 morning news sunday. first thing we want to do, of course this morning, what everybody wants to know, check in on the weather and you can see the wind picking up. the camera over crystal city, marine corps marathon this morning, and runners are out there in advance of the storm. as we said, gwen, good morning. >> things will rapidly go downhill into this evening, melanie, and we want people to take this storm very seriously, because it is a massive storm. we are expecting massive winds and torrential rainfall. looking at the rain bands in the coastal area, sandy is moving in a northerly direction right now. even though it is still far away, we are feeling the effects. light rain in some areas, but to the south, heavier rain as the outer bands push their way towards the mid-atlantic.
a huge storm threatens to cause major destruction. the other bands of hurricane sandy are bounding the north carolina and maryland coast right now t storm is 270 miles southeast of cape hatteras. 75-mile-per-hour winds, sandy is moving north and expected to turn toward the east coast tomorrow and collide with a cold front, morphing into a dangerous megastorm. there are mandatory evacuations taking place in the lower lying parts of the state, tolls have been suspended in parts of the garden state park way to help out evacuees. and then on maryland where it too has been declared a state of emergency, there are voluntary evacuations in the lower lying areas and then in downtown ocean city, there are mandatory evacuations already under way and we understand that some of the other states are helping, including that of louisiana, which are helping out the state of maryland and then in d.c., public schools have been closed. sandbags are being distributed. so an awful lot is taking place and as it pertains to the race of the the white house, governor romney had some expected rallies that a
